Milwaukee WI: Oct 27, 2018:
Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium, Milwaukee Bucks, WI Economic Develop Corp (WEDC), and WI Aerospace Partners joined forces to host the second Aerospace Jam on Oct 27, 2018. This year’s event was held at the new Fiserv Forum in downtown Milwaukee.
Aerospace Jam was created to provide students an opportunity to learn more about Wisconsin’s aerospace industry and local businesses. The half-day event drew over 300 STEM students, ranging from middle school to college seniors.
Spincraft WI participated for the second year, welcoming the chance to speak with students about manufacturing at their New Berlin facilities. Spincraft Engineering Manager, Jeff Dudzik, fielded questions ranging from the very basic to highly complex, with subjects covering Spincraft processes, technologies, products and applications. Dudzik found it refreshing and rewarding to connect with the enthusiastic students, stating it gave him a ‘new perspective and appreciation’ for the variety of interesting projects and development work Spincraft has been a part of for so many years.
Spincraft Engineering Intern Michael Mueller offered his insight to those students inquiring about intern duties, and HR Manager Jamie Martin spoke of various career opportunities within the plant.
